I had to have some tests at the Hospital today. Dr.'s are so nosey; always wanting to take a look around if they get the chance. Today I had the privilege of having a CAT scan with Barium and contrast.
So I had to have nothing by mouth beginning at midnight last night, and since I meet with my prayer group at a coffee shop filled with enticing smells that was a huge exercise in restraint in itself. Then I went to morning Mass and had to walk up to communion only to receive a blessing. That poor school teacher (it was a school mass) looked so puzzled by the sight of a grown woman with her hands folded across her chest that for a second she didn't quite know how to respond. Then she brushed my forehead with her palm and sent me on my way.
Then when I got to the hospital they offered me the barium drink which was miss labeled, because it clearly stated that it was pleasantly flavored and whoever wrote that on the packaging should be fired immediately. I think they might have been going for cream-sickle flavoring, what they actually achieved was more crap-sickle flavored. Better you should trust me on this than actually try it yourself to find out.
How does the medical industry allow this travesty of packaging to continue? I realize if they had to adhere to strict honesty in packaging no one in their right mind would ever take the stuff, but there has to be a limit.
Just once I would like to see some company fess up and say:
Lets face it, this stuff tastes like swill, but it will get the job done, so put on your big kid panties gulp it down and stop complaining.
Wouldn't that be refreshing?
